This pheasant comes up to our basement windows in my mom’s sewing room, and just pecks on the window. Not sure what he’s looking for, maybe he sees his own reflection and is trying to trying to eliminate what looks like his competition. Mom says he’s been doing it off and on over the past couple of months. But we appreciate his company and can get a pretty nice closeup view of him, until he sees us and then runs away cackling. Kindof like that youthful game/activity of knocking on someone’s door and then running away before they answer.
It is true, I’ve only seen two people (my parents) today, so interactions with other living creatures sometimes take on a new significance.
